Executive Officer Hajj Committee of J&K Dr Abdul Salaam Mir Saturday said that the final quota of Hajj 2022 for Jammu and Kashmir and Ladakh is expected by March 1.

“Quota depends on the quota whether all pilgrims registered till February 15 would perform Haj or the Haj committee would go for draws,” he said.

He said that the last date of submitting the forms for Hajj 2022 was February and there was no further extension.

“So far, 11500 applications from Jammu, Kashmir and Leh. A few hundred applications are in the pipeline that include those who have incomplete forms and invalid passports etc,” he said.

He said that at all India level, 90,000 applications have been received so far.

He asked whether all 11500 registered Hajj pilgrims would perform Haj this year, he said it was up to the quota to be allotted to J&K and Leh.

“This all depends on how much quota Saudi government would allot to India. If given quota is good, then I believe all the registered Hajj pilgrims will be allowed to proceed for the pilgrimage. But if it is less, then we will have to go for draws,” Mir said.

He said that the final announcement by the Saudi government about Hajj 2022 quota is expected by March 1. “Things will be clear by March 1,” he said.

He, however, said that it would be after two years that Haj will be allowed by the Saudi government this year.  (KNO)
